About

From the Publisher

Las Vegas is plummeted into an identity crisis by the economic downturn. Psychopaths, suicide, drugs in the water and an underground corrupt prostitution ring are a sober look at the reality of Vegas. The story is told through the eyes of a naive TV reporter who touches down in Las Vegas hoping to break these stories wide-open but faces powerful forces to maintain the status quo. The story uses television news to transport the reader across time, space and topics to explore the shocking underbelly of this raunchy desert city. As the city is trying to re-gain its former glory, police, politicians and prostitutes are at odds over legalizing the worlds oldest profession in Las Vegas. The public is caught in the middle. The story of manipulation and illusion of glamor leaves you wondering what is real.

Opinion on prostitution is changing. A decade ago (2002) a survey of 600 Nevadans found that 52% favored the existing legal and regulated brothels. The trend was that new arrivals to Nevada opposed legal prostitution while long-time Nevadans tend to support it.

A July 2011 Public Policy Polling survey found that 56% of Nevada voters thought that prostitution should be legal, while only 32% thought it should be illegal and 12% were not sure.

A June 2012 a Public Policy Polling survey found that 64% of Nevada voters thought that brothels should be legal in the state. 23% thought they should be illegal. 13% were not sure.
